Despite the facade put in place by Monsanto that virtually all mainstream medical organizations believe there is no difference between traditional and genetically modified organisms, even the American Medical Association (AMA) may soon support the labeling of GMOs through federal legislation or regulation. In an attempt to accelerate the process towards the direct labeling of GMOs, the Indiana State Medical Association and Illinois State Medical Society have both introduced resolutions to the AMA on the subject. The resolutions, which stem from these prominent mainstream entities, urge the AMA to back labeling initiatives.

The AMA will reportedly be considering the proposals on June 17th, during its annual meeting. What’s more, the long list of individuals and organizations behind the push for labeling does not stop there. The resolutions submitted to the AMA are backed by a multitude of researchers and physicians, including Dr. Martha Herbert, a pediatric neurologist and past vice-chair of the Council on Responsible Genetics. In response to the secretive nature of GMOs and the subsequent lack of real knowledge on their wide scale effects, Dr. Herbert stated:

“Tracking the millions of people with vulnerable immune systems and their reaction to novel proteins and virus fragments in genetically engineered food is impossible without food labeling.”

Labeling of GMOs Gains Momentum

In other words, since GMOs are currently incognito in the food supply and unsuspecting consumers are constantly consuming them, it can be very difficult to tie them directly to a condition. For example, a large incidence of cancer may have erupted as a result of GMO consumption, and it may be nearly impossible to isolate the incidents and conclusively link GMOs to the onset of the disease. This is one reason why it is extremely challenging to bring down Monsanto with a lawsuit, as the company could say — due to the mislabeling and allowance of GMOs into the food supply — that it is impossible to prove GMOs were directly responsible.

What we do know, however, is that GMOs have been linked to a number of problems for both humans and the environment. Insects like rootworms are continually becoming more and more resistant to heavy pesticide usage on GMO crops, prompting farmers to douse the crops in even more brain damage-linked pesticides. Not only does this pose a serious threat to human health, but the environment as well. Through the creation of ‘mutated’ bugs that threaten farmland, Monsanto’s creations are changing the very way that the insects respond to chemical pesticides. As a result, warnings by the EPA and scientific groups have begun surfacing.

Even mainstream medical groups are coming out of the woodwork to lend support to the labeling of GMOs. It’s time that the government began responding appropriately to the overwhelming amount of support towards the many labeling campaigns and initiatives currently being launched around the globe.
